Bulls on Parade is a song by Rage Against the Machine that deals with the US military and their aggressive tactics. It mentions how the arms industry encourages war to get military contracts with lines like, "Weapons, not food, not homes, not shoes, not need, just feed the war cannibal-animal," and "What we don't know keeps the contracts alive and moving." (Thanks, Tim - Pittsburgh, PA)

The lyric at the beginning is "Come With it Now." It is often mistaken for "Quit It Now."

Rage Against the Machine performed this on a controversial episode of Saturday Night Live. They hung upside-down American flags on their amps, which is something they did at their live shows. The SNL producers thought it might offend Steve Forbes, a presidential candidate who was hosting that night, and told the group to take the flags down. The band, upset that such a cutting-edge show could be so oppressive, left after playing their first song. (Thanks, Dale - Wichita, KS)
